RK dps to Hnt dps still upsets me to. They are the little brother to the DPS classes and yet oust the other two.

The others complained we were OP and thus Turbine slammed the DPS Hammer onto our nail head.
Boss fights alone in a raid are usually straight forward. It's getting to the bosses that can alter the class role ina raid. Plenty of times I have done BG or DN and was set for CC vs DPS trait lines. I myself usually detested this as I hated the cut on DPS in the ToF line (always had and thankfully its gone) but did it anyway and it showed different play styles. So I will agree with you that the actual Bosses in a raid the Hunter is for the most part DPS set but a raid alone isn't set by just the boss fights. It's built from the mobs as well.
The Rift was a big one. Knowledge is power in any raid. Course what im going on has nothing to do with Classes and roles but when Rift first came out and you had the Task Masters + Trolls and healers you had to know how to handle the specific enemies to continue into the raid and if you didn't you probably spent a good 30 minutes battling a simple mob. Ahh paving the road to success in raids
Outside of Raid Bosses the same rule would apply. I have done say SG set in CC mode back before I knew the place better and did that vs DPS until we would get to a boss and retrait. Costly but got the job done. Same with raids.
